E Daily Stock Pick: Flowers Foods - Wednesday, March 11

A portfolio of stocks I've been building since September 3, 2019 is named Volio. It will eventually hold 52 dividend dogs. Volio is the fifth portfolio I've built (at a one dividend dog per-week pace) since 2014. Five portfolios = V for Volio!

Today I'm reviewing the third of five consumer defensive sector stocks striving to join my Volio folio. This could be my twenty-eighth pick for Volio!

That consumer defensive sector includes twelve industries all related to providing convenient packaged goods we've just gotta have. Industries like: beverages, brewed, soft, or distilled; confectioners; discount stores; education & training; farm products; food distribution; grocery stores; household & personal products; packaged goods; tobacco.

My subject today is a mid-cap packaged foods industry representative named, Flowers Foods Inc. Their trading ticker symbol is FLO. This is my third report about Flowers Foods Inc. It was selected as my fifth pick for my IVY portfolio.

Flowers Foods Inc is an American company producing bakery food for retail and foodservice across the United States. The product portfolio includes fresh bread, buns, rolls, snack cakes, and tortillas.

The company distributes to supermarkets, convenience stores, and restaurants. The operating segments are divided into direct store delivery, which provides fresh bread, tortillas, cakes, and rolls; and the warehouse segment, which distributes fresh snack cakes and frozen bread and rolls.

The key brands are Nature's Own, Dave's Bread, Whitewheat, Cobblestone Bread, Wonder, and Tastykake.

The company was formerly known as Flowers Industries and changed its name to Flowers Foods, Inc. in 2001.

Flowers Foods, Inc. was founded in 1919 and is headquartered in Thomasville, Georgia.

I use three key data points to gauge dividend equities or funds like Flowers Foods, Inc:

(1) Price

(2) Dividends

(3) Returns

Besides those three, several other keys will finally unlock an equity or fund in which to invest, or not.
